How to Have a Relationship with God

by Dr. Bob Deen

When I was younger, I had some apprehensions about the “G” word (God). It was my understanding that God was always watching. He was watching when I was with friends, seeing what I was doing on my own and knew every little thing and I always had this feeling that if I wasn’t perfect I […]

Living in Harmony with Nature

We have many relationships – relationships with ourselves, with oneness, with the world around us. We also have a relationship with nature and it is important that we recognize that relationship and continue to nurture it. We often begin our Sunday Celebration by taking a deep breath and letting it go, and repeating two more […]

But how bad does it have to get […]

But the real, full truth is that we are spiritual beings, having spiritual experiences and we are human beings that are having a human […]

Welcome to the Temple

These days, it is so easy to compare our bodies to those that we see on screens – whether that is the television, social media or online somewhere. Regardless of what we see and think of other bodies, what is true is that we don’t have the power to live in those bodies. Your body […]
